Hello
Can someone who is over SRP and in receipt of SRP be furloughed from their part time work? Guidance does not appear to rule it out, but neither does it include pensioners as eligible?
Thanks

Seems to be comprehensive and doesn’t exclude pensioners.  I cant think of a reason why it should as it’s an employment not income measure.
